NFL Draft Rumors: Seahawks, Jaguars, Chiefs, Vikings interested in Connor Shaw?


Depending on who you ask, former South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw may have a role in the NFL.

It’s not likely as a starting quarterback (at least on a good team), but Shaw has drawn significant interest and reportedly feels as if the Seattle Seahawks and Jacksonville Jaguars have interest in him.

A Twitter followed passed along a link featuring comments last Tuesday from South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw.

“The two teams I’ve met with the most are Seattle and Jacksonville so we’ll see what that means,” Shaw said.

Shaw isn’t likely to go in the first few rounds – with many suggesting he won’t see his name called until the third day of the 2014 NFL Draft.

Certainly a project quarterback, Shaw posted impressive numbers with South Carolina, throwing 55 touches to 14 interceptions last season.

In addition to the Seahawks and Jaguars, Shaw mentioned that he had spoken to the Kansas City Chiefs and Minnesota Vikings, though he did not elaborate on their talks.

      Connor is A LOT better than ponders will ever be I’ve seen his game tape and it is fine. I would laugh if he becomes the next Tom Brady but you never know. I think he will become somewhat of a Alex Smith

    He threw 24 TDs and only one interception last season. Fifty-five and 14 are his career stats at the USC.
